      "Coconut and hazelnut aromas mingle with ripe, dark-skinned berry aromas. Reflecting the nose, the tight palate offers toast, licorice and blackberry jam alongside tightly knit, drying tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      "A compact, minerally version, with tobacco and smoke notes leading to flavors of dried cherry, pomegranate, coffee and spice. Medium-bodied and fresh, with grippy tannins that should integrate well with short cellaring." Wine Spectator

      "Luminous red. Aromas of flinty red berries, red cherries and minerals have a bright floral overlay. Then very good inner-mouth perfume too, with exhilarating lift to the red fruit and stony flavors. The finish is long and clean, nicely framed by suave tannins and harmonious acidity." Vinous

      "Aromas of lemon, watermelon and black cherries follow through to a medium body, firm, silky tannins and a solid, bright finish. Tighter style to this." James Suckling

      "The 2017 Etna Rosso is a terrific entry-level red wine from the Sicilian volcano that boasts the power and electric charge that I associate with wines from this fascinating territory. If you are new to the wines of Etna, this Rosso is a great place to start. This is a well-made and carefully shaped Nerello Mascalese that ushers forth smaller berry fruit, smoke and pencil shavings. The fruit is pure and precise. The wine's overall presentation is sharp and accessible." Robert Parker

    About the winemakers
    Cusumano
    Sicily
    Cusumano

    Some connoisseurs of the Italian wine scene say that since the turn of the millennium more has been done in Sicily in terms of quality thinking and management methods than in the 200 years before. The charismatic Diego and his older brother Alberto Cusumano - one economist, the other oenologist - played a not inconsiderable role in this recently accelerating development. The family winery in Partinico near Palermo, which was once started as a producer of must concentrates and, after a reorientation, is now managed with great passion by its siblings, has quickly conquered the world market with more than two dozen of its own labels and around three million bottles per year despite Sicily's very poor financial situation. America and Germany are the most important export countries. When Diego presented himself for the first time in 2001 at the Vinitaly wine fair in Verona with four of his own creations, he was immediately presented with the "Tre Bicchieri" of the Italian wine guideGambero Rosso.

    The rise of the Cusumano winery, which continues to this day, was accompanied by a Sicilian wine revolution: Since then, young wine growers have not only been focusing on better quality, but also offering a home to the island's old grape varieties. After seven years of preparation, Alberto and Diego have succeeded in developing part of Sicily's untapped potential in four wineries spread across the island with a total of 502 hectares of cultivated land. In the south-east of the island, the ancient Sicilian grape variety Nero d’Avola. In Ficuzza near Corleone, with 189 hectares of vineyards the largest cultivation area of Cusumano, the climate is influenced by high temperature fluctuations between day and night at an altitude of 800 metres.

    The Cusumano brothers differ from many other winegrowers on the island in that they only use their own grapes for their production. This independence gives them the freedom to experiment. On the newly added Alta Mora estate, the native grape varieties Nerello Mascalese (red) and Carricante (white) grow in the Alberello system on the northern slopes of Mount Etna on sand, lava, ash and basalt at an altitude of 600 to 1000 metres. The grapes are carefully selected and pressed in an underground cellar with walls of lava stone. The Guardiola vineyard, which also belongs to the estate, is one of the Grand Crus of Etna. The two brothers have very high expectations of the newly planted vines: From 2016, the vines will produce the grapes for one of the best red wines in the "mountain of fire" deliver.

    Although the grapes of the Alta Mora winery grow on the slopes of a volcano that is still active, the wines are not characterised by excessive southern heat, strength and opulence. The affordable fresh, fruity and mineral drops are rather rich in finesse and of almost Burgundian cool elegance. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The elite winery of Alberto and Diego Cusumano has succeeded with a message of elegance and modernity in establishing itself on the international market in just a few years. The decisive factor was a clear, dynamic and forward-looking strategy.“Gambero Rosso
